About Getting There Guide

DRMAC strives to achieve mobility and access for all in the Denver Metro region. We want people to go where they want to go as well as where they need to go. Having information about transit resources is key to helping people stay connected to places which lead to healthy and active lives. We hope this webpage / app will be a tool to help you "get there". You can also receive a personal consultation on how to "get there" by contacting our Information and Assistance line at (303) 243-3113

Additional information including PDFs of our transportation guide in multiple languages can be found on our website at

Medicaid Information

A Note About Medicaid Transportation

Individuals who receive Medicaid as their primary medical insurance can contact IntelliRide* and provide their Medicaid state ID to find out if they are eligible for transportation benefits. If eligible, free transportation may be provided to Medicaid covered medical and behavioral health appointments.

Individuals who are enrolled in one of the following Medicaid Home and Community Based Services waiver programs should contact their Single Entry Point or Community Center Board case manager to find out more about transportation services and providers: Supported Living Services waiver, Elderly Blind and Disabled waiver, Brain Injury waiver, Spinal Cord Injury waiver, and Community Mental Health Supports waiver. Visit and search for single entry point agencies or community center boards.

Assistance with navigating Medicaid transportation resources is also available through local Regional Accountability Entities (RAEs). The RAE for Adams, Arapahoe, Douglas, and Elbert counties is: Colorado Access (call: (303) 386-0037). Denver residents can call: (303) 368-0038.
